    Hi all,
    I have an Electrolux RM4217 110v model in my imported Toyita campervan. I've happily run this fridge with a 240v/110v stepping transformer for the past 5 yrs.
    The 110v heater has now burnt out and needs replacement.
    Is it just a simple straight swap to replace the heater with a 240v item or are there other things to consider?

    Thanks
    Ed.

    Not sure as there may well be other circuitry involved like a PC Board, suggest you give Glenn or Ian a ring on Monday and ask them if no one else replies.

    fridge element

    no you can't just swap the element, the control circuitry on a 110 volt fridge is totally different to the 230 volt ones, the 110 volt elements are available, I may even have one. I need the product code from the fridge. (Next to the model number on a sticker inside the fridge compartment may start 921.......)

    Thanks Dunc,
    I've had a look and inside the fridge there are 2 stickers.
    One is silver and is totally in Japanese, the other is paper and doesn't quote a model number but has the serial number of 418 01000

    Is this of any help to you?

    Thanks
    Ed.
